Carper, Coons & Carney can’t grasp this because they are millionaires who hang around with other millionaires
This was reported yesterday but not widely recognized as an actual fact within the beltway:
Two out of three Americans are dissatisfied with the way income and wealth are currently distributed in the U.S. This includes three-fourths of Democrats and 54% of Republicans.
Where do non-congressional members of the American family get these crazy ideas?
The combined wealth of the world’s richest 85 people is now equivalent to that owned by half of the world’s population – or 3.5 billion of the poorest people – according to a new report from Oxfam.
By the way – Yes. John Carney is a millionaire. $800k in assets and a steady government job puts him over the line, so get over it. What possible incentive could John Carney or any of our elected officials have to give a shit about income distribution when they (and everyone they associate with) is on the winning side of the equation?
